there was a time i found myself
cascading over never ending falls
the waters so turbulent
i felt like i was never going to surface
through the mist i saw a hand
well beyond its reach
i grabbed hold of it
as the silhouetted figure
lifted me onto the shoreline
i thought to myself
what’s he doing down here
who would want anything to do
with me
as i wiped away the droplets
that had built up around my eyes
much to my surprise
the strange figure that had lent the helping hand
turned out to be me …

FINALLY a half decent photo of a dugite (Pseudonaja affinis or dobitj in Noongar)
🤠🐍
I was a bit disappointed that I hadn’t seen many snakes out in the bush recently, and when I had it was just a glimpse of a tail as they disappeared. They’re quite wary of humans and prefer to run away if possible (which is why most bites occur when people try to chase or kill snakes). While venomous snakes should be treated with respect, and I wouldn’t recommend stepping on one, there’s no need to fear them - this is something I’m pretty passionate about! While it’s a bit clichéd, it’s true that they’re as scared of us as we are of them. If you’re going out into the bush take a pressure bandage as a precaution and trample loudly so they can hear you coming and you should be fine 👌

Happy Wildlife Wednesdays! Today’s animal is the American Rubyspot Damselfly (Hetaerina americana). The male American Rubyspot has a metallic red head and thorax and a dull metallic green abdomen. The inner 1/3 of the wing is also red. The female is mostly metalic green, including the whole front of the thorax, while the lower sides of the abdomen, including the ovipositor, are pale tan. The female descends underwater for 30-60 minutes to oviposit. This is a very common transcontinental species. It prefers larger streams and rivers. It usually flies close to the bank and perches on vegetation hanging over the water. It is infrequently found on ponds and lakes when no suitable streams are present.

I took this photo of a female American Rubyspot damselfly in June of 2018 near the Blue River in South Kansas City, Missouri. It was early morning and the dew was still on the grass blades making for a really great addition to the scene! I love the iridescent greens and reds of the damselfly and the dew droplets, and just how much fine detail you can see in this shot! Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Not a great photo, but a first for me: yellow-bellied sapsucker. I got a few new birds while camping before my little camping buddy got tired of hiking and birding. Lucky for me, she then just wanted to read by the campfire for hours on end. It was a good trip.

“Lulu”
Three-toed sloth
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lulu lives on the tropical island of Costa Rica. She cooperated and let me take photographs of her—I even got to hold her!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Her hair was coarse, and she weighed less than my eleven-pound dog. I now have a fetish for sloths!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Three-toed sloths are aboral which means they spend most of their time in trees. They mainly eat leaves but also eat fruit and flowers.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
About every seven days, they come out of the trees to use the bathroom. They use their tail to dig a hole and do their business in the hole. Who knew?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now, one hangs from my computer—only it’s stuffed!
